Who Killed the Electric Car?

Did the car of the future already exist in the past?

An Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore’s documentary about global warming was not the only US movie to provoke environmental debate this year. There was also Who Killed the Electric Car? by Chris Paine, released last June. This movie explores the development, commercialization, and premature death of the EV1 battery car of General Motors in the 1990s. A website presented by Sony Pictures Classics concisely summarises all the facts, figures, and arguments used in the movie. Dave Barthmuss of GM Communications reacted with the article Who Ignored the Facts About the Electric Car? on the GM blog.

Watched "Who Killed the Electric Car" recently (great documentary). Then I heard that GM and Tesla are making another run at the electric car (which is progress I guess). Hopefully development of this technology can go on unhindered by the corporations that depend on oil consumption.
